The puzzle is not unlike its sequel, which included North American animals.

Did you spot a large number of animals in the picture above? Or perhaps just a few?

Upon closer inspection, it appears that the picture shows an elephant, a dog, a donkey, a turtle, a rat, a snake, a dolphin, a cat and a fish.

These are the nine main animals that are most “officially” seen in the picture.

So, the main question at this stage is, how many animals did you see at first glance?

Hang on to that thought, because we’re about to reveal the final answer.

First, let’s examine the picture one more time. See if you can spot any additional animals.
